Innovative Orthodontic Solutions:
Work Smarter. Live Better.
We are practicing during an amazing time in the history of orthodontics. New technologies are emerging daily. Some of these innovations are merely hype and may actually increase the workload of the Orthodontist, while others are incredibly powerful tools to improve the quality of our clinical care as well as our practice management efficiencies and effectiveness. In addition, patients have more choices available to straighten their teeth. Some patients are choosing to have orthodontics done by their primary care dentist, and some are even getting aligners by mail! With all of these available choices, why should they come to you for their orthodontic care?
This lecture will focus on technology based orthodontic solutions that will allow you to work smarter and live better. It will dive deep into the use of technology to get patients into your office, optimize the overall patient experience, improve clinical outcomes and efficiencies, and simplify the day-to-day management of the orthodontic practice. Most importantly, this lecture will empower you to implement proven, technology-based strategies to differentiate your practice and to help patients and potential patients realize that you are the obvious choice for their orthodontic care. You simply can’t afford to miss this!
- Discuss the impact that technological advances have had on the practice of Orthodontics
- Review the use of relevant and exciting clinical and practice management technologies in the orthodontic office – virtual orthodontic visits, intraoral scanners, two-way texting, online reviews, social media, Dual Activation in self ligation, and more
- Explain how to implement proven, technology-based strategies to work smarter, live better, and to differentiate your practice as the obvious choice for orthodontic care
